For example, if you only need the MAC addresses of the physical adapters and not those of the numerous virtual adapters, you could run the following query:.

MAC addresses should not be relied upon solely for access control filtering and MAC address spoofing is a well-known security risk. Hi, is there any way to check if device is connected to the network, when you know only MAC address?

I guess the fact that Edge Chromium has yet to make it to a beta release means its probably going to be at least Spring before we see a Edge Chromium stable release. I've seen features come and go in Canary and a lot of work is still in progress from new features. I don't think Microsoft should be pushing a Dev. I get the feeling Microsoft is feeling compelled to keep Edge in the mix as a viable browser because every month it keeps losing more users to Chrome with the original Edge.
The big question still is will anyone really care when Edge chromium finally makes it to stable?
There are many Chrome clone's out there that have not garnered a whole lot of users besides the fringe who want a uniquely featured browser. I have to wonder exactly how many Chrome users will really switch? The other interesting question is exactly how many users are even testing Edge chromium now?

In Debian, there are 2 packages: arping and iputils-arping. The arping package worked for me, though network interface is specified with a lower-case i : arping -c 1 -i eth0 Patrick Patrick 81 1 1 silver badge 1 1 bronze badge.
Why not just use arp -a which doesn't need admin access? Didn't really give him any instructions on "how" to do this. In the case of viewing it on the router, you just go to the web interface and hunt around. Can't be much more specific than that since every router has a different layout and set of pages for its web admin.
